Apsara Beachfront Resort & Villa

Khao Lak, Thailand

The hotel

You could be forgiven for thinking the Apsara is only for water babies, with its beachfront setting, infinity swimming pool, villa pool, two kids' pools, pool villa upgrades, water slide and of course, the obligatory Jacuzzi. But there’s more to the Apsara than sun, sea and sand. Set in unspoilt tropical greenery, along Pakarang Beach, this All Inclusive haven offers a range of drinks and things to do. There’s the Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, spa treatments, bike rental and kayaking to name but a few!

Just returned from our first amazing holiday in Thailand. We stayed at the Apsara and just loved it. The resort when we were there was lovely and quiet which is just what we wanted. The location is just amazing - a stunning beach with a beautiful, tranquil sea which was the warmest I have ever encountered! The service at the hotel was outstanding - the staff really couldn’t do enough for you. The restaurants and bars were very good - the Thai food, as seemed to be the case wherever we went, was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back.... Read less

Currently staying at the Apsara with only a couple of days left before we head home. This is a truly wonderful hotel and resort to stay at its a beachfront hotel so you do not have far to go to relax by the sea. The beach is spotlessly clean and the sunsets are amazing. The Hotel offers a good choice of pools with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas too. The food at the hotel is amazing offering a different themed night throughout the week a long with local dishes to.The ala-carte restaurants do not disappoint to with a good variety of dishes. Breakfast and dinner are well catered for to with lost of choice all cooked fresh. What makes the hotel special is its staff so friendly and eager to please alway waiting with a welcoming smile and happy to please nothing is to much trouble. I would whole heartedly recommend the Apsara to family and friends. Read less

I was lucky enough to have stayed at this resort for 16 blissful days. The location of the resort is perfect, as it is right on the beach. The beach is never crowded and at certain times i was the only person on the beach. The sea is surprisingly warm and it is clear. I was staying at the resort side in a superior room on the second floor. The room is simply decorated but spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom is large with a rainfall shower, there is always hot water on tap, whatever time of the day or night. I had a massage at the resort’s spa, it was so relaxing, I even fell asleep during my massage. The only reason I woke up was my snoring. But honestly if you get the chance, try it. You can also have a beach massage on the grounds of the hotel. What I will remember most about my stay is the beautiful sunsets, cool cocktails and wonderful staff. They don’t call Thailand, the land of smiles for no reason. Come, sit and relax. Read less

Just coming to end of our magical two week holiday to Apsara, all I can say is wow wow wow. This hotel has a strange way of making you feel instantly so chilled out and you forget about normal life straight away. We stayed in the standard room which was perfect, everything you need is right there. The air con is perfect in this heat. No complaints at all. The Zeus bar is fabulous, we ate here quite a lot the Penang curry is to die for! Again a super chilled out vibe here, we would spend hours on those swinging chairs just people watching. We were bed and breakfast and breakfast is fab, you must try the omelettes they are my fave. Staff they are the people that make your stay even better with their kind ways, special thanks to Emee for being so kind, approachable and helpful. Thanks again Apsara, we will be back...but next time with the swim up room. Read less
